seems hard.

since we need an intermediate cpumask memory to save the result of cpumask
bitmap operations, the only way i can get the idle core and make sure "cpus"
isn't broken is:

diff --git a/kernel/sched/fair.c b/kernel/sched/fair.c

        return -1;
 }

but the questions are:
1. is it really cheap?
2. how to use possible_idle? right now, select_idle_core() is also selecting idle cpu. we shouldn't simply return when possible_idle is false.

Thanks
